1723 PENNY Rosa Americana Penny, W-1278, Martin 2.7-Eb.3, R.4, AU55 NGC. Die alignment: 180?. A well-struck example of the distinctive type with UTILE DULCI on a ribbon. Bright brassy surfaces with only a bit of rub to the high points give this piece strong eye appeal. A couple of small marks on George's throat are noted. The reverse is especially attractive, with a bold crowned rose and distinct legends. This example is nicer than the Martin plate coin. Listed on page 45 of the 2018 Guide Book. Ex: Eric P. Newman Numismatic Education Society.
